How did you meet your (now) husband? At Virgin Australia, where Matt works as a pilot and I was a flight attendant.

The Wedding

What was your wedding date?  29th August 2014

Location (Ceremony and Reception)

Where? Carousel, Albert Park Lake, Melbourne

What made you choose there? The fabulous view and central location

How did you find it? I’d often walk around Albert Park Lake with friends or brunch at the carousel café. I had also been to events in the apst there. One look at the venue and we both knew it was perfect for us.

How was the weather on the day?  Perfect 19 degrees

What made you decide to get married on this particular date? It was a year after we got engaged and one week before peak season and prices for wedding commenced.

Where did you draw your inspiration from? Cosmo Bride, My home and Pinterest.

Bridesmaids – who/relationship?  2 bridesmaids. Rebecca- MOH & Felicity (Rebecca is my new sister in law)

Groomsmen – who/relationship? Brad- Best Man & Marcus

Wedding Gown (the most important part!)

What made you decide to come into Karen Willis Holmes? I saw the Matilda dress on the back of Cosmo Bride, and that was it my mind was made up.

Where have you seen our gowns (if at all) before?  I know of 3 brides who wore KAREN WILLIS HOLMES gowns.

How many gowns did you try? 2, just to be sure. The second one didn’t even get done up.

Where did you purchase your gown from (which store or stockist)? Armadale

What did you especially like about your gown? The corset top, its feminity, the tiers, the Vera Wang feel. Its unique

Who helped you pick the gown/ who shopped with you? My mum, mum-in-law, sister in law, MOH and my best friend via phone messages from Sydney.

Fashion

Who is your bridesmaid dress supplier? Thurley. I didn’t want my bridesmaids looking dresses.

Where did you get the groom and groomsmen’s suits?  Joe Black

What accessories did you choose to finish your gown and also for those in your bridal party? I wore Tiffany + Co pearls, bridesmaids wore Mimco

Where did you get your shoes from? Badgley Mischka

Did you wear a veil/headpiece? Where did you get this from?  Yes- it was my ‘ something borrowed’ from my bestfriend who was married 3 months earlier in it. Weve known each other since we were born so it was special.
